Canon EOS M100 review

 

This stripped down system cam is just a bit too light on features

Small size ; Large sensor ; Easy to use

No viewfinder (or option to add one) ; No 4K video ; You might quickly outgrow it

It's small and produces nice photos, but M100 otherwise lacks enough truly exciting features to tempt you from your smartphone

Canon EOS M100

 

Hands-on with Canon's entry-level mirrorless camera. Canon EOS M100.

Good wireless connectivity ; Small and lightweight ; Responsive touchscreen ; Well built for an entry-level model

Lacks guided user interface ; Very basic controls ; Doesn't offer support for a viewfinder ; Very basic controls

The Canon EOS M100 picks up where the Canon EOS M10 left off, but it’s very basic, rather expensive, and has room for improvement in areas of its handling and manual control. Anyone buying their first interchangeable camera or looking to take their...

Canon EOS M100

 

The mirrorless Canon EOS M100 delivers SLR image quality and fast autofocus in a compact build with a touch LCD that makes it easy for anyone to use.

Very compact. 24MP APS-C image sensor. Fast autofocus. 6.1fps burst shooting. Tilting touch LCD. Built-in flash. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

No EVF or mic input. Not a lot of native lenses available. Touch interface will turn off pros and shutterbugs. 1080p video feels dated.

Canon has done a good job with the EOS M100. It doesn't sacrifice any image quality or focus speed compared with the higher-end models in the line. Instead, it focuses on making things easy and making the camera portable enough so that you won't mind...

Canon EOS M100 review: Pocketable point-and-shoot makes mirrorless easy

 

If you're looking for DSLR image quality in a point-and-shoot-style camera, then the Canon EOS M100 makes a lot of sense. However, for us, it's a bit

Really small-scale design ; Good image quality in good light ; Touchscreen functionality and point-and-shoot use ; Excellent wireless connectivity

Limited lens line-up ; Point-and-shoot design means many manual controls are hard to access ; Not as beginner-friendly as it could be

If you're looking for DSLR image quality in a point-and-shoot-style camera, then the Canon EOS M100 makes a lot of sense. However, for us, it's a bit of a hit-and-miss camera.

Canon EOS M100 review

 

A mirrorless camera for the selfie generation

Very good image quality ; Super-simple for novices ; Fast and responsive autofocus ; Compact retracting kit lens

No viewfinder ; Everyday adjustments fiddly ; Full HD not 4K video ; Not especially easy to grip

The EOS M100 has been designed to be simple and unintimidating for novices and smartphone photographers, and it succeeds at that really well – but if you're looking for a camera that can grow with your technical skills you could soon find it frustrating.

Canon EOS M100 system camera

 

Canon EOS M100 compact system camera : Canon introduced the successor to the EOS M10 interchangeable lens camera: the compact and powerful EOS M100. An easy-to-use system camera, the Canon EOS M100 is an excellent choice for those looking to step up...

The use of interchangeable lenses is a differentiating factor of the Canon EOS M-Series from most smartphone photography, with Canon offering seven distinct and lightweight EF-M lenses, spanning wide-angle, telephoto and macro applications.

Canon EOS M100 entry mirrorless crams M6 into M10's body

 

The company's renamed replacement for the EOS M10 seems like a stripped-down version of the M5 and M6.

Canon EOS M100 Review

 

In my first M100 Field Test, I focused on the camera body itself, the image sensor and image quality, autofocus and performance. I was impressed by the M100 and found it offered a good amount of versatility in a compact form factor.

The M100 looks a lot like the M10 it's replacing. One immediately apparent difference when using the camera is that the M100 has a gripped surface across the front, whereas the M10 had a smooth plastic surface. While the grip does help a bit, the M100...
